Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, I am not sure whether Bhutto or Musharraf are more convenient to this US administration. Washington might be getting exactly what it wants, like probably in Iraq... It happened just in time for Iowa voters to be reminded about terror, terror... All GOP candidates there knew exactly what to say.

It's all sad that this Bhutto saga was kind of expected. But only cynics in power seem to know what to do in this shock, and how to do it.

Meanwhile, the US is back to dealing with Musharraf, which is where they started.  He doesn't get much choice either, despite the attempt to destroy him.  

But I don't expect him to last long now.  

It looks like the US will be opening another front in its endless war, one way or another.  

The Fates are kind.
